Retain your breath as you lift up your left foot and leg and bring them back to form a parallel line with your right leg and foot. Your two legs and feet are together, lifted in a straight line off the floor in a modified push-up position. You are now in a position popularly referred to as "Plank Pose." Your hands are under your shoulders, palms on the floor, fingers pointing straight out in front of you. Your arms are straight, with the insides of the elbows and forearms facing forward. Your torso is parallel to the floor. Contract your abdomen to maintain your straight, active position—your entire body forms a line as straight as a plank from head to toe.
